Where?

 

Here is a map of the Fresno area showing all the 460 randomly chosen sites for point counts. We have grouped the points into 58 routes, each consisting of 7-8 points which can be censused during one morning. Volunteers adopt one or more of these routes. The map below (which is a Google Maps mashup) shows the points as green bubble markers, with the number within each marker indicating the route it is part of. The panel on the right lists all the points grouped by route number. Scroll through the list to find a particular point, or click on bubble icon in the map to get more information, including the site ID number, and some notes about the accessibility and location of each point.  To check a route’s availability click here.  You can also turn on the satellite or hybrid views, and use the zoom tool to better visualize the location of each site.

However, for greater detail, and the ability to generate driving directions to any site from your home, we recommend the Google Earth version of the map, which is located here. If you don’t already use Google Earth, you may download the latest version for free here.

NOTE (4/8/15): AS OF TODAY, THE MAP EMBEDDED BELOW DOES NOT SEEM TO BE WORKING. WE ARE TROUBLESHOOTING THE ISSUE, WHICH MAY BE SERVER SIDE, OR DUE TO SOME CODE CHANGES FROM GOOGLE IN THE SPREADSHEETS / MAPS API. FOR NOW, WE SUGGEST DOWNLOADING THE GOOGLE EARTH FILE MENTIONED ABOVE. THAT IS A BETTER OPTION IN GENERAL ANYWAY.
